Burying the Boston Bomber

I've been hearing on the news that the family of the Boston bomber is having a hard time finding a cemetary willing to sell them a plot to bury him in.

I think that a Catholic cemetary should come forward and offer to bury him. 

I know he was a terrorist.

I know he was a Muslim.

But one of the Catholic works of mercy is to bury the dead. The mortal remains of human beings should be treated with respect, no matter who they were,  what they did or what religion they happened to be.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
